Malus medica.

The citron

Aurea sunt Veneris poma haec, iucundus amaror
Indicat, est graecis sic glycypicros amor.[1]

These golden fruits belong to Venus: the sweet bitterness tells us that. Even so is love glukupikros for the Greeks.

Notes:

1.  γλυκύπικρος, ‘bitter-sweet’, a concept often applied to Love in Hellenistic epigrams.

Picea.

The spruce tree

At picea emittas nullos qụd stirpe stolones,
Illius est index, qui sine prole perit.

But the spruce, because it sends up no shoots from its stock, is a symbol of the man who dies without progeny.
